a bit wonky

here are the pots i made at the ceramic course back in april. they've been glazed and fired and were ready to come home today. they are wonky, but i am pleased to see them. i'm going to put various trinkets in these.

this one will be perfect for serving smoked almonds.

this was one of the first ones i threw and it's especially wonky. but i kept it and put a handle on it to remember those first, unsure steps. i will definitely be drinking cups of tea from it.

i think this one will be perfect as a cat food bowl for a special cat.

and i had to have a couple glazed in nina's cheerful colors. i had so much fun working with the black glaze that i almost forgot to leave some plain to just choose colors. and being me, they weren't really all that plain with their little dotty bobbles. i love how they turned out!
